Ad blocking in IE

@ David S.

I use the "HOSTS" file ( C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc ) to block ads at work (yes it's 163KB now but I don't get popups I don't want). Edit the file with Notepad or Wordpad. Just make sure after saving your edit that the hosts file has no extention.

Don't want to see current GOOGLE ADS, add these new lines to the hosts file:

127.0.0.1 pagead2.googlesyndication.com

127.0.0.1 www.google-analytics.com

On a side note, I use it to stop being redirected to domain ad search pages if I get Fat Finger Syndrome whilst misspelin in the address bar ;-)

127.0.0.1 as.casalemedia.com

127.0.0.1 landings.trafficz.com

127.0.0.1 spi.domainsponsor.com

127.0.0.1 landing.domainsponsor.com

127.0.0.1 ads1.revenue.net

127.0.0.1 search.live.com
